Answer by grr.
If you plan on forcing any dog throught that, you are cruel and dont deserve to take care of a dog. Dont force her into having 7 litters of puppies, be happy with your own dog and encourage others to adopt homeless dogs and puppies. You are an enormous jerk for trying to make money off a dog's suffering while hundreds of other dogs are being killed everyday. So give your dog the love she deserves and dont be an idiot.

Are you asking about an English Bulldog or a French Bulldog maybe some other bully breed? Some dogs come in season twice a year but somehow I doubt many English Bulls do. I would not recommend breeding back to back but there is recent differing medical opinions on that. If your really interested in breeding, do your research and start out with something nice and as health clear as possible. But also go to Pet-Law, a yahoo group, just look it up. Read the achieves, the Animal Rightists are trying to end all home breeding and in fact pets, so it might be a good idea to have an understanding of what could happen in the near future before you begin. It might be nice if everyone understood what was going on and started to protect our ability to keep pets and show dogs too.

They are EXTREMELY hard and expensive to breed. A female should not have a litter more than once and year due to the stress of the c-section (which they have to have), and should not be bred more than 3 times in their lives. Just FYI: I bred my French Bulldogs last fall, and I had over $ 1500 in the litter in just vet bills by the day that they were born, and she only had 4. Bulldogs have to be artificially inseminated and have to have c-sections, and they usually do not have more than 6-8 puppies. It is also hard to find good breed stock to start with.
Answer by walkinglady
A bulldog, like every other breed, should have a MAXIMUM of 1 litter every second year and never more than 3 litters in a lifetime. They are the most expensive breed going due to needing AI, C-sections, plus the myriad of health tests that need to be performed before you even consider breeding.
Since you had to ask the question, no they are not a good dog to breed!
